Annabel Mackenzie is a Registered Shiatsu Therapist in the Province of British Columbia. She has been a private practice in Vancouver, since 1990. 

Annabel's manual therapy approach includes
 Shiatsu therapy, Visceral manipulation, Neural, Vascular and Manual Articular techniques.

Gentle specifically directed manual forces relieve pain and restore resiliency.  The musculoskeletal container as well as the delicate intelligent contents 
( organs, circulatory and nervous systems ) are both important in resolving problems.

Apart from a full clinical practice, Annabel teaches several continuing education seminars in Canada, and abroad.
